Welcome to the Parallel Learning Trust. We are a Multi-Academy Trust established in 2014, with expertise in primary, special and alternative provision. We embrace our moral imperative to educate and develop young minds in preparation for their futures in the world of work. We are a truly collaborative organisation and the culture that we promote is one that is driven by our core values. These values have been carefully developed and apply across all of our academies. Most importantly, our approach is driven by passion, commitment and a genuine desire to create and nurture long term relationships.
I have been a teacher since 1985 with curriculum strengths in English, Sociology and Physical Education. I am dedicated to improving the life chances of young people. I believe that our organisations have an exemplary track record for raising standards; accelerating pupils progress and ensuring all learners reach their full potential. I am a firm believer in all practitioners being experts in SEND, teaching and learning, self-evaluation and leadership. I am a qualified Ofsted inspector (PQSI, Middlesex University) and a non-executive member of a number of statutory and charitable boards.
At the Trust, our people are our greatest asset. We invest heavily in their future by training them and ensuring they are given every opportunity to grow into the best practitioners they can be. We are not into gimmicks or the latest fad; we endorse approaches that have been researched fully and have sustained and proven impact in the classroom.
The whole of our team welcome you to our website and we hope you enjoy browsing.
